About Pam Carter
Pam was born in Tanganyika, East Africa to an Austrian mother and Scottish father. At the age of thirteen she came to Scotland where she schooled at Bearsden Academy. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in the seventies and began her teaching career. She taught in from the mid-eighties in various colleges. After lecturing full time at Falkirk College she now concentrates full time on painting.
"My main inspiration is in the Scottish land and seascape. I enjoy using colour to define contours, structure and changing light sequences. I search out specific view points. I am equally inspired by the rugged isolation of the Western Isles and the dramatic view points of the Eastern coastline. I work predominantly in oil".
Pam's work is in numerous private and public collections including Royal Bank of Scotland, University of Liverpool, Baillie and Gifford, Cameron House, Port Charlotte Hotel, Islay and Hotel Eilean Iarmain, Isle of Skye.
